Moves

This category focuses entirely on card moves - from the basic cuts and shuffles to the bastard hard ones.

Literally hundreds if not thousands of card moves have been developed over time. You won't need to learn all of them, but any card man of name has in each basic move category (palm, control, false shuffle, false cut, false deal, glimpse, flourish, force, ...) one or two strong moves ready to use.

Once you have a solid grounding in the basic moves pretty much any card trick is accessible to you.

Practicing moves can have a zen like quality to it. Some achieve a naturalness similar to a musician, dancer or juggler. It looks effortless, but it can take thousands of hours of practice.

Gambler's Cop From Tilt by Allan Ackerman

This is a very efficient and deceptive move by Steve Draun. A card which is inserted into the deck automatically ends up in the gambler's cop.

Chris Wasshuber independently developed this move in 1993 during his stay in Japan including an important visual convincer. If you want to learn this improved variation email him. He might be talked into releasing it. If you can't get Chris to talk then check out the Huot/Duperre control from Magic Menu volume 10. It is very similar to what Chris is doing.
